.Brad Hawpe's two-run homer was part of Colorado's three-run ninth inning and the rockies rallied for a 3-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.

Hawpe hit a 1-1 pitch from Matt Capps into the shrubbery beyond the wall in center field wall, scoring Ian Stewart, who led off the inning with a pinch-hit double. It was Hawpe's sixth homer and it gave him 11 RBIs in his last five games.

Capps (0-3) blew his second save in his last four appearances. Making his third outing since sitting out a week due to elbow fatigue, Capps has allowed nine runs and 15 hits in his last 4 2-3 innings.

Alan Embree (1-1) earned the win with a scoreless eighth, and Huston Street struck out the side in the ninth for his fifth save.
